Established in 1896 by Gustave David, G.DAVID  (David's Bookshop) has traded  in St. Edward's Passage, Cambridge through three Centuries.  Still an independent bookshop, there has been a member of the founder's family involved ever since.  ~  We deal in Antiquarian, Second-hand &            Remaindered (Reduced Price) Books, Maps, Prints & Engravings in many subjects. ~The partners have over a century of combined experience in the trade & might just be able to answer the questions that the online giants don't even know exist !

The disappearance of 'Bookshops' over the last several years has been our saddest experience (there were 20 in Cambridge when I started working here). We chose not to 'go online' and thus avoid direct contact with our customers, therefore this site is merely a web 'presence' .

~                   ~ We are here Mon-Sat. 0900-1700.  Please phone or email  ~


 Our shop at 16 St.Edward's Passage (shown above), whilst somewhat 'hidden away' , is situated  very close  to the Market Square , the Tourist Office &  King's College Chapel . The 'Tardis-like' shop carries a  surprisingly large and  varied stock. Update 2017: We are now listed, by Pitkin Guides, as a University Museum !  Some days it feels just so, but this is incorrect ( however, all 'reasonable offers' considered ) 

                                    Opening times are   0900 - 1700  Monday-Saturday inclusive

                                                         ( we are Closed on Sundays & Bank Holidays)
